16 police stations damaged in fuel price protests nationwide

The Indonesian Police Watch (IPW) reported on Sunday that the recent five-day series of massive rallies to protest against the government’s plan to increase fuel prices had resulted in damage to at least 16 police stations nationwide.

In its press release, IPW said four damaged police stations were located in Jakarta, while the remaining 12 were located in several other big cities, like Makassar, Medan, Yogyakarta, Samarinda and Kendari.

The rallies, held from March 27 to March 31 by students, activists and supporters of the Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle, the country’s largest opposition party, also damaged four patrol cars and one police motorcycle.
